Gordon is Supermac for Scotland senior men

as they beat England at Westport

Gordon MacDonald was the match-winner as Scotland edged out England on day one of the Senior Men's Home Internationals at Westport in Ireland.
The former Scottish Senior champion beat reigning English Senior champion Chris Reynolds by one hole in the final singles tie to clinch a 5-4 win.
MacDonald, and playing partner Sandy Pirie, had been swept aside 8&7 by Reynolds and Doug Arnold in the morning foursomes, but the Scot had his revenge in the afternoon.
Despite MacDonald and Pirie's heavy defeat, Scotland rallied to claim the foursomes 2-1 and singles wins for Ian Hutcheon and Bob Stewart pushed them nearer the finishing line.
But defeats for George Paterson, John Fraser and Derek Murphy saw England draw level before MacDonald holed a 15ft putt to beat Reynolds at the last.
In the day's other tie, defending champions Ireland beat Wales 7-2.
